More Wedding Chalkboards

Wanted to share some more chalkboard signage that I had the pleasure of doing for Rose and Ben's October 18th nuptials at Salvage One here in Chicago! Collectively, these were the largest boards I'd ever worked on!

The couple had found this GREAT vintage door and asked me to letter their menu on it. I want one of these for my studio!!!

Hope everything went well and congrats again to Ben and Rose, one of my favorite couples this year.

Take care guys,

Kesh Events Grand Opening

I had the privilege of working on some materials for Kesh Events Grand Opening, owned by Akeshi Akinseye. The event was on September 4th and I did the envelope calligraphy, the tags for the champagne sip and the sponsor card inserts.

Congratulations to Akeshi and it was a pleasure!

Circular drink tags with metallic gold lettering


Akeshi also had a photoshoot the same day in her new space and CT-Designs provided stationery for this fabulously designed tablescape...




Me and Desirée of Dejanae Events messing around...

Isn't her space gorgeous?

CT-Designs Calligraphy & Wedding Stationery Video Shoot

I shot a video, yes a video for CT-Designs. Its going to be a part of my marketing materials and I couldn't be more thrilled!

Real nervous because I'm really a "behind the scenes" kind of girl, but this turned out to be a wonderful experience! Check out some of the stills and watch the video when you get a chance!



Thanks for making me part of your day and have great weeks! --ct

My Latest Wedding Chalkboards

I got a chance to do some GREAT wedding chalkboards this season. I feel that I'm becoming more of an artist as I get further along in my career and custom lettering/illustration has particularly emerged as a passion. I was asked to do a few boards for a 09/21 wedding and I was absolutely thrilled. Thanks to Helene and Danielle!

Welcome signage - 5 ft. tall and my largest board to date, yowza!

Signature Drink signage. Coaktails named after the couple's pet poodles, so adorable.

Signs to hang on beverage station - milk flavors

I actually got a chance to customize this existing hanging board for a client in California
